Mithraeum I in Stockstadt, Saalburgmuseum, Saalburg Roman Fort, Limes Germanicus, Germania (Germany) Southeast of the fort, on the vicus road that ran parallel to the Main. There was a temple to Jupiter Dolichenus very close by.

The younger mithraeum was built larger than the earlier shrine and at a more secure site. It measured 13m x 7.8m on the inside. Many altars from the dedication area of the beneficiary station were used for the building, which indicates that the station no longer existed.
